As we grow older, it is natural for our vision to change. One of the most common issues we see in patients at our Bronx optical shop, Urban Eyes, over the age of forty or so is presbyopia. Presbyopia is an optical condition in which the eye decreases in its ability to focus properly as a result of the natural aging process. If you already wear eyeglasses for being nearsighted or farsighted, you may still notice signs of presbyopia. For people who already depend on their lenses to see clearly, the development of presbyopia may call for a new kind of eyeglasses—either bifocals or multifocals.
At our Bronx optical shop, we have both available for you. Bifocals contain two different lens powers to help you with two different kinds of vision impairments. Similarly, multifocals contain either two or more lens powers in order to help you see objects at all distances, which works perfectly for those who have developed presbyopia. Multifocal lenses are broken up into different zones, so that you can look through a certain area of the lens in order to see the object you are focusing on more clearly. This becomes a natural process and patients find it very easy to adjust to over time. If you are struggling with symptoms of presbyopia, you should schedule an appointment with the experts at our Bronx optical shop as soon as possible so that we can evaluate if you are in need of bifocal or multifocal lenses. If you do need new lenses or new glasses, there is no better place to be than Urban Eyes, where we have an extensive selection of beautiful designer brand frames to suit any budget.
